best burgers in vegas?

asc339 Dec 2, 2008 11:22 PM

I've searched this board but still not clear where to find the best burger for lunch in Vegas. Should be on the strip since we'll have no car. Please tell me WHERE you love them and WHY. Thanks!

Here's what I have so far:
Mesa Grill (Caesars)
Burger Bar (Mandalay; though maybe not as good as it once was?)
Stripburger (at fashion mall)
BLT Burger (bad reviews here when opened)
Bradley Ogden (Caesars)
Brasserie at Paris
anywhere else?

    I suppose I should clarify that I'm looking for feedback on the options already listed (ranking? must try? not all that?), or other options if you have any.

    Or maybe this board is more about the fine dining and not so much about the burgers? Worth a try anyway... Thanks.

      Where: Mesa Grill
      Why: Because it's damn good!

      I am trying Burger Brasserie tonight; I'll give you a report.

      The only good part about Stripburger is that you can watch limos pulling in and out of Wynn. Mediocre burger.

        Love, love, love the burger at Mesa grill. It's definitely worth a try.

          Burger Bar - very good (consistent) burgers. I've eaten there 5 times over the past few of years.
          Mesa Grill - very good to excellent burgers. I've eaten the burger 3 times over the past couple of years.
          Bradley Ogden - my sister said it was excellent, I was too full to try it but when a group of regulars (people who the servers and others in the restaurant know) all order the burger that says something. I will try the burger on my next trip to Las Vegas along with the blue cheese souffle I always get there. (I think Bradley Ogden is only open for dinner.)
          BLT Burger - had the sliders. They were good, I could eat here again but I've only tried it once.

            my order of preference:

            Stripburger - great burgers, atomic fries and shakes. Prices are reasonable. Service is fair.
            Brasserie at Paris - all around good, variety of options.
            Burger Bar - variety of options, bill can quickly add up, always found buns to be the weak link - very dry.
            BLT Burger - bland, pricey, good shakes

            One not on your list, is the Kobe burger at Stack with Vermont Cheddar. It's excellent.
